Slicing PSD for CSS design

  • # April 21, 2009 at 2:25 am

    Hi All,

    I just had a general question I thought the community would be able to offer their thoughts on… I noticed in Video#13 – Converting a Photoshop Markup: Part 2, Episode 3 that some really large areas of the graphic were cut up and implemented… I have always tried to cut as little as possible out of the PSD and either repeat it or use html background colours to avoid large files and load times however, Chris appears to have not been to concerned with this… Am I wasting my time minimising graphic use in the html/css pages or is my approach still worthwhile?

    Thanks

    Rob

    depends how low you can get the file size really. alot of sites use a fixed large image these days – thanks to the advent of broadband, but also image quality lol.

    You can get ya images down really small these days :) So as long as your background image isnt like 5mbs lol …

    But yea – I would always make everything as small as possible… :)
